8 March is International Women’s Day. In the past few years, Ci has featured graphics on women in chemistry to mark this occasion; first, this one on women in chemistry history, and last year this one on women in chemistry present. This year, here’s another edition, looking at twelve more underappreciated women from chemistry history.
The summaries in the graphic are necessarily succinct to allow as many chemists to be included as possible. However, if you do want to find out more about any of the women featured, I’ve linked some articles of interest for each of them below:
- Jane Marcet
- Anna Sundström
- Anna Volkova
- Ellen Swallow Richards
- Agnes Pockels
- Lucy Everest Boole
- Margaret Seward
- Annie Malone
- Edith Humphrey
- Maud Menten
- Ellen Gleditsch
